Dragon's Breath is the second of the frog princess series. It is about a girl named Ella who is both a princess and a witch in training. The story starts out when a prince asks Ella for her hand in marriage, and she declines. But the prince doesn't give up there. he goes to war with Ella's kingdom to try to make her give in. While this is all going on, Ella's grandmother turns Hayward (Ella's Aunt Grassinas' fiancé) into an otter and sends him far away. Ella's aunt goes looking for him and because she's the green witch, she has to defend the kingdom when bad things happen. While Grassina is away the king and his army are left to defend themselves from the opposing army. Ella is also away getting the ingredients to change Hayward back into a human. Ella goes under the sea, to a dragon Olympics, and to a magic market to find hair from the mother of Pearl, breath from a green dragon and the skins of magic beans (which are currently out of season).Once Ella gets all of the ingredients she rushes as fast as she can to the kingdom. but is it too late? Once Ella gets back to the kingdom she finds that the battle is already happening but, at least Grassina found Hayward! As quickly as possible Ella gives Grassina the potion and goes off to help her father in the battle. Once Grassina gives Hayward the potion he turns back into a human but something goes terribly wrong! All of a sudden... I will let you read the book to find out. There are many positives of the book including that it was very funny and suspenseful. Also, it was very intriguing and interesting! Another positive is that, the main character was a young girl who does magic which is very interesting. And finally, the last positive was that the book was an adventure and you could not possibly put down the book. Even though this book was amazing, there were still some negatives. In Dragon's Breath one of the negatives was that there were too many things happening at one time. Another negative was that there were lot of different settings and it was hard to keep up. Finally the last negative was that there were many characters which made it some-what confusing. E.D. Baker -the author of Dragon's Breath- is a very creative and distinctive writer. The writing style of E.D. Baker in the story is magical and exciting! Also the book is written in first person, and has longer sentences compared to short. Next, the writing style of the author is only semiformal but speaks with dialect. And finally the writing style of the author in this book is that she uses sensory details for example "the steam rising from the eggs wafted toward my nose drifting past Li'l. Smells good." I recommend this book completely to girls ages 9 and up! Also to girls who are just looking for a good book to read. And finally to people who like princesses, magic and witches. Some books that are similar to Dragon's Breath are The Frog Prince, Once Upon a Curse, No Place for Magic, The Salamander Spell and the Harry Potter series. Overall, Dragon's Breath, by E.D. Baker is an amazing novel about a princess and what happens when your grandmother is a former queen and is now a mean old witch.

I think that Dragon's Breath is the best of the series as far as I've read the series (need to read Salamander Spell and Dragon Princess) The book was full of adventure and love while also friendship. READ IT

Dragons breath was a good book I would encourage others to read it to. I love the part when they run into the dragon and the giants that was a fun part. I am sorry if some of this information is wrong I read it a long time ago. The first book to the series is the frog princess but I don't think you have to read it first to understand the Dragons breath but I recomend that book to. I hope this review helped you to buy this book becouse if you are into fairy tales and magic I garentee you will love this book and the other books to the series to.

Full of adventure and fantasy. If you like fairytales, this is the book for you. I think it is amazing that Emma survived turning into a frog every time she sneezed. I really enjoyed this book. Anyone in 4th grade and up would like this book. I hope to read the sequel soon.

Tales of the Frog Princess, book two.Emma and Eadric have regained their human forms (mostly), but their troubles are far from over. Emma's aunt Grassina is ignoring her duties as the Green Witch because all she can think about is finding a way to return her fiancee, Haywood to HIS human form. Grassina's mother turned him into an otter years before. Grassina has finally found him, but he is still an otter.Emma and Eadric race against time to retrieve the items they need to reverse the spell. Meanwhile, the neighboring country decides to take advantage of the situation and invade Emma's kingdom. A surprising twist at the end of the story paves the way for book number three in this entertaining series.

Princess Emma and Prince Eadric are back in a humorous, fun-filled, and utterly charming adventure as they try to help Emma's aunt Grassina attempt to restore her otter beau back to human form. I enjoyed this second book of the series more than the first.

Emma and Eadric are taken on another wild ride as they try to change Grassina's belvoed Haywood from otter to man. They must find four rare items- magic beans, feather of a horse, a green dragon's breath, and a gossemer hair form the mother-of -pearl. As they set on this quest, the two funny frogs/humans have many exciting and wondrous adventures. This is a very clever book. It kept me guessing even after it ended. It is the sequel to The Frog Princess. The next book in the series is Once Upon a Curse.

This second book of the series was much more enjoyable than the first. Though I still feel that Emma is a bit too juvenile, this story was funny and interesting. There were many more secondary characters introduced throughout the tale and they were all pleasant and fun to read about. I think I liked this one more because it actually felt like there was a plot going on. Emma and Eadric help Grassina search for the items needed to turn her beloved Haywood back into a human after 20+ years as an otter. Their search introduces them to a number of interesting creatures. I definitely feel better about the series after having read the second book and will continue it.
